Part-way through his UK and Ireland arena tour that has seen him sell all 125,000 tickets in advance, Gerry Cinnamon again raises the bar by announcing his biggest headline show to date. Gerry will play a 50,000+ capacity show at Hampden Park, Scotland’s national football stadium, on July 18th. He follows iconic names such as The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Oasis and Bruce Springsteen.
But that’s not all. Gerry also today reveals that he’ll release his eagerly anticipated second album ‘The Bonny’ on April 10th on his own Little Runaway label. It’s the follow-up to his Top 20 debut album ‘Erratic Cinematic’, which has been certified Gold in recognition of more than 125,000 sales. He’s already exceeded 115 million plays at Spotify, including the recent singles ‘Dark Days’ and ‘Sun Queen’.
“Hampden Park in the sunshine. New album under my belt. We’ll have that place rocking easy,” says Gerry.
Fans who pre-order ‘The Bonny’ from his store here will receive access to a pre-sale for tickets to the Hampden Park show. The ticket pre-sale opens at 9am on Wednesday November 13th and remains open until the general sale commences at 9am on Friday November 15th from www.gigsinscotland.com.
Gerry’s current tour includes Scotland’s biggest ever indoor headline show at Aberdeen’s P&J Live Arena, ahead of two homecoming shows at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena. This summer has already seen Gerry make an impact far beyond what would normally be expected from an independent artist. His Glastonbury set saw the John Peel Stage rammed to capacity, with fans spread out far beyond the confines of the tent. And back home in Glasgow, he co-headlined the TRNSMT Festival alongside Stormzy. Such unforgettable scenes resulted in him winning Best Live Act at the AIM Independent Music Awards, an accolade that was decided by a public vote.
Everything that Gerry has achieved has been done entirely independently via his own label Little Runaway. It’s the result of making a connection with fans in the purest way. His songs tell relatable stories which have captured the imagination of audiences up and down the country. Gerry makes a habit of whipping the audience into a frenzy which sees them leaving on a high and wanting more.
Gerry has just released two brand new tracks. ‘Sun Queen’ went straight to #1 on the Official Vinyl Singles Chart and exudes the traits that have earned Gerry his phenomenal status. The melody is strident and direct, and sure to be a huge sing-a-long moment of his future live shows. The follow-up, ‘Dark Days’, captures Gerry’s gift for writing emotionally intimate songs that immediately resonate with huge audiences. That contrast is also in play with the lyrics, which celebrate the power of love as a force of hope in troubled times.
